The very definition of irony

It turns out they call them "local channels" for a really good reason...

The very definition of irony is the letter from Dish Network informing me of my $5/month rate hike arriving in the mailbox the same day that my brand new HDHomerun ( showed up. Delicious.

There's something like 26 channels broadcast in my area (plus the 10+ that I would NEVER be interested in), all available for free. I'm using a setup based on the Argus TV recorder and XBMC as the frontend (which I already used to watch all my videos). It seems to be working great so far.

Now, to watch all the stuff I've got recorded on the DVR so I can cancel the ol' dish.
